I can't stand when people use the word "literally" incorrectly, mainly when they actually mean "figuratively".

You?

That's a good one.

Also, when people say, "I could care less" when they actually mean, "I couldn't care less" or people using the word, "irregardless".  That word's now become so pervasive it's now being force-listed in some dictionaries as colloquial. Give me a break. Might as well say, because so many idiots say this, we now list this "word" despite the fact it isn't really a word.

Caplock is annoying as hell.
Loose/lose
There/their/they're
People who think writing like a twelve year old on AOL shouldn't reflect poorly on people's perception of their intelligence.

When people use a double negative in a sentence, or when they up the ante and use a triple negative. Screws w/ my head.

"I cannot say that I do not disagree with you."
